    I have been working at Flipp full-time

    Pros

    CEO rules with an iron fist. People that don't understand should leave, I've learned so much from him and I can't thank him enough for his tutelage. When people confront you, just bury them in work until their complaint is no longer relevant. When you confront others and they ask you to justify it, just let them know that they don't understand, belittle them until they no longer have the will to contradict you. Brilliant!...

    Cons

    How could a place like this have any cons? It's been an amazing journey, I just hope that I can survive to see the next phase of brilliance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. As you've said, we must be relentless with your vision and we can't let things like facts slow us down.

    I worked at Flipp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing work / life balance Generally fantastic / smart people working here Great, ambitious company vision

    Cons

    Retailers move slow and it seems like the company is content to move at a similar pace on the client solutions side. On the user side, product innovation felt slow to non-existent and user growth is stagnant as a result. Lots of potential, just too slow to execute! Culture not as data-driven as it should be for a tech company. Partially blocked by tech debt in legacy systems which is acknowledged by management. Severely...

    Advice to Management

    True transparency is acknowledging faults and losses from time to time. Be upfront with issues the company is facing and build a rallying cry around addressing those problems instead of constantly beating the same high-level vision drum or giving the same talk about culture again. Bitter sweet when I left, but don't regret moving. All in all still hope to see Flipp succeed and reach its potential.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Growth Mindset - Always growing, learning and challenging (work and personally); Hardworking - Everyone is working hard with you (i.e. peak periods like Black Friday, teams support each other.. even if they are not on the team). Humble - You always have the few that aren't but I would say 95% of people I work with are very humble. When you compliment them, they shy away and prefer to compliment others. Results Oriented...

    Cons

    Easy to get overwhelmed - There will always be more to do - my biggest learning is working on prioritization. It is hard to do because this is A LOT you can do, but we are encouraged and supported in looking for ways to prioritize Growing Pains - there are opportunities to streamline, simplify. That would make it easier to drive efficiencies and balance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring a breath of knowledge across industries - it helps drive growth and different perspectives. There are some instances where legacy Flipp opinions are very apparent - sometimes good, other times potentially inhibiting. Continue to drive process, consistency and structure, as we continue to grow, that continues to be more important to grow more consistently.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time

    Pros

    Flipp is a great place for people who are really focused on team work and who want to build authentic relationships and solve massive problems. We all work very hard and I've been so impressed with the calibre of people around me every day. We work really hard to hold our standards high so we do have a work hard play hard culture. We've grown through the years and we're not a young startup anymore - that comes with...

    Cons

    There are lots of places to improve at Flipp like any organization. We could improve the way we look at our benefits like Goodlife, or the way that we do performance evaluations as there aren't any perfect ways to do that yet but we're looking to make it better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being humble, and keep driving improvements. We can only get better if we stay humble constantly.

    Pros

    - Management cares about the people who work here and has built an open and transparent culture. The new leaders we've hired also seem consistent with the culture that we have. - The business is healthy and the product has come along way but still has much more to improve but that's what I'm excited about. - In most roles, there is a lot of opportunity for ownership - the new mission based teams that we rolled...

    Cons

    We've done alot of rework on our technology to make it faster to move, but there is much more to be done.

    Advice to Management

    I'd encourage management to make sure we continue to invest in things that will make it faster for us to dev.

    Pros

    Many organizations say they have 'great people'; 'no politics'; they "care about making a difference" - this is a truly authentic company that cares. The people are amazing and it doesn't matter what level or title you have, people listen and act on it. There's so much opportunity and it's exciting every day! I also believe there are amazing benefits to help with everyday stresses: we have on site massage, physio,...

    Cons

    There's so much opportunity and so many great people that we want to accomplish so much. We need to prioritize and slow things down. It's amazing for learning and growing but it can be busy.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to values, principles and focus on people. Slow things down a bit.

    Pros

    Collaboration with some brilliant people. Challenging tasks. Flexible work schedule. Casual and fun atmosphere. Free snacks, and I live in Mississauga so commute is great.

    Cons

    Fast-paced -- sometimes too much so and need to keep up with it. Not enough time to think carefully about the best answer to problems.

    Advice to Management

    More recognition and reward programs may be good.
